Keep me on the water every day through the end of December! We are looking for $500 in pledges by December 22. If you make this happen, I will get on the water every day for the remainder of December. I'm like that kid that will do anything for a dollar. As a 41 year old, I feel like $500 is reasonable to suffer through rain, snow, wind, and extreme cold.
Today is my first day beyond the SpinSheet Centurion. Now that I've become a member of that elusive club, all days on the water are solely dedicated to raising funds for Oyster Recovery Partnership to continue their good work of planting oysters in the Chesapeake Bay. To date, ORP has planted 8.5 BILLION oysters! I can't get over that number! What might be more impressive is the incredibly small amount of funding they are able to do this with. They can plant 100 oysters with only $10.
As of publishing this entry in the log, we have enough pledges to plant 40,000 oysters. A little birdie has told me more are coming in tonight! I can't thank all of you enough that have pledged.
It seems like our original goal was too easy, since we hit it four days into the challenge! Now it's time for me to up the ante. I'm willing to sacrifice my own comfort for nine days of miserable winter days on the water. This will give me a total of 115 days on the water in 2019.*
We've made it as easy as possible to pledge: We don't collect any money, and you can pledge as little as $1. Head over to the pledge page and let's plant some oysters!
*If you are paying close attention, you'll notice that math doesn't add up. I have a little Easter egg waiting for you at the end of the fund drive!
We are an adventurous couple exploring the Chesapeake Bay by boat, paddle board, jet ski, and whatever other means necessary!
